Teacher Appreciation day was on our horizon, and I wanted to do something special for my boys’ teachers. I always feel happier around flowers and thought it would also brighten the teachers’ days to have some lovely flowers. When I thought about the vase, I wanted to do something that was not only personalized with a monogram but also reflected the teachers’ favorite color of pink. Discover how to easily make these vases for someone special or keep it around to decorate your own home.
Our number one tip for getting the most bang for your buck when decorating a party would be to make your own balloon garland! We received so many compliments on our balloon garland from our Toy Story post that I knew it was essential for us to write a step-by-step guide that illustrated how to assemble a balloon garland. You will not believe how easy and inexpensive this project is! Your guests will gasp when then see it!
Each year we strive to create a unique and elegant Christmas card. We were pleased with our cards but a little embarrassed about how the envelopes looked (confession- my handwriting is not that stellar). We would admire those rare envelopes that displayed handwritten calligraphy. How could we get those stunning envelopes without hiring a calligrapher? Recently, I figured out a way to replicate the look of handwritten calligraphy with my Cricut Explore Air 2!! You do not have to stop with your envelopes; I will show you how to make lovely Christmas cards too.
We grow a serious amount of citrus in the Lam household. During both lemon and lime season, we’re continually scratching our heads to determine how we can use up all our citrus. My son is a budding entrepreneur; we thought it would be fitting to squeeze all the lemon juice and build a lemonade stand for him!
We have a Mario birthday party that’s just around the corner! We wanted to design shirts for both my boys, my husband, and me. Don’t you think it would be darling if the boys had shirts that read bros for life? Mom and Dad would have a super mom and super dad shirts that were appropriate for Super Mario Brothers. We did Mario-themed shirts here, but you could use the steps below to create any kind of shirt! We will show directions on how to create your own designs and how to make a shirt using a pre-made template or picture from the web.
